The US attempts to create the “Thunder God” in the A-10 Warthog such that an attack cannot pierce his wings

This is the first aircraft of the United States Air Force designed specifically for close-air support missions.

The United States has always been able to design deadly aircraft. But sometimes engineers have managed to exceed even the wildest expectations by practically designing an impenetrable tank with wings as opposed to an attack aircraft!

The A-10 is a single-seat aircraft. The cockpit is equipped with Titanium armor from 12.7mm to 38.1mm thick with a total weight of up to 408 kg. This armor can withstand 23mm anti-aircraft bullets. The A-10 has good maneuverability in slow and low flying because of its large, straight wings.

This gives the pilot enough ability to observe the battlefield and distinguish targets for the best support. Because it does not need to fly fast, the A-10 is equipped with a turbofan type engine, two engines mounted on the back creating the distinctive shape of the A-10. In general, the A-10 is considered ugly in appearance but is an extremely effective aircraft.
